RV Camping Map

We will be taking our first RV camping trip, with Radeen's family, out west as we explore the National Parks of Colorado and Utah. We will be using Mark and Tammy's 31 foot RV and following Punkie and Shane (Radeen's sister and brother-in-law) with their own rig. This will be our first RV trip, and we hope to learn a lot about running an RV. We imagine it is very similar to boating which is why they are sometimes called a "Land Yacht."

Here is the planned route and stops where we will spend 2-3 days at each location.

Alaska Cruise

Alaska, the Last Frontier is one of the most beautiful places on earth. We joined Radeen's family, and together we celebrated our 35th and Lee and Judi's 50th anniversary along with their children, Darren and Tanya. We boarded the cruise ship, Celebrity Solstice, in Seattle Washington and enjoyed a 7 day cruise to Ketchikan and Juneau and then sadly the captain diverted away from Skagway due to a 50 mph gale storm. Our final port of call was Victoria in British Columbia, Canada. From there we sailed back to Seattle. The voyage into the TRACY ARM FJORD will remain the most beautiful place we have ever seen. Hands down, it is breathtaking, nothing like we had even imagined!

I shot 1,700 photos, the best 100 photos are in this slideshow providing 5 minutes of enjoyment. :-) When playing the YouTube, maximize the video for best viewing. Enjoy.
